Ottawa East End Accident, Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth shares..

Ottawa Injury Lawyer David Hollingsworth…A 12-year-old girl is thankfully at home  after a hit and run Ottawa accident in the east end yesterday. Kalie Panula was on her way to school yesterday morning when a car pulled out from behind an OC Transpo bus and hit her. Panula believes that the grey Honda CRV started to slow down, but then sped up once  he saw her and hit her head-on. Panula was thrown several feet but thankfully landed on her knapsack, which prevented her from hitting her head and possibly suffering a head injury. Panula described the driver as ” a scrawny man in his 50s”.

Anyone who may have information or who witnessed this Ottawa accident is asked to contact the Ottawa Police.

Ottawa Frost Bite Warning In Effect: Be careful on slippery Ottawa roads and sidewalks: Ottawa lawyer David Hollingsworth

The freezing rain and snow have finally stopped and now a deep cold is setting in throughout Ottawa and eastern Ontario.  Ottawa, Gatineau, Brockville, Cornwall and Smiths Falls were under a snowfall warning until late afternoon, with 15 centimetres or more expected throughout the day. A freezing rain warning was lifted that morning. There were over 60 Ottawa accidents yesterday and reports indicate that some Ottawa accident victims suffered minor injuries.  Police believe that this was due to the fact that Ottawa drivers were slowing down and driving cautiously.  Well done !  Not all accidents can be avoided but this just goes to show that if all drivers out there are driving very carefully we can reduce the number of Ottawa accidents that result in serious personal injury.  To all of you out there who took a little extra time to get to your destination, or drove a little more defensively, congratulations , you did a great job. 

That being said, you job is not done.  There is a frost bite warning in effect in Ottawa. Dropping temperatures and increasing winds today will give us  a -28 C wind chill. This cold cold weather looks like it’s here to stay for the day and will be as lows hit -22 C this evening. Once you add  in the windchill factor and we’re looking at -27 C , according to Environment Canada. In other words, its coooooooooooolllllllldddddddddddddddd. My advice, stay in.  It is supposed to warm up a little tomorrow.  Unfortunately, our Ottawa roads and sidewalks will be slick and slippery. This will make it very challenging for Ottawa drivers, cyclists and pedestrians.

I have to admit, as much as I would like to, I can’t stay in.  We will be out about shuffling our children from hockey rinks to swimming pools. My plan..slow and steady wins the race. We will get to where we need to be , then home for the SENS game..Go Sens go !  Please be safe out there today Ottawa.  Take your time, keep our Ottawa roads as accident free as possible. Have a great, safe weekend.
